deficits. he voted to increase the debt by $16,000 every second he was in the senate. he expanded medicare, which was good, but he did not pay for it. he was part of a senate and a house that declared two wars but did not pay for the wars and instead put them on the credit card for our kids to pay. he made a massive tax cuts to health -- to help the wealthy. he did not pay for them. we went from surplus to deficit. he voted four times to raise his own pay. he voted four times to raise the debt with it, he voted for 52,000 earmarks that totaled $121 billion. even george had to admit, spending was a problem when i was in the senate. we do not need to go back to it. he is a harsh partisan. he attacked hillary clinton as someone who does not share our values. attacking john kerry. george would not joined a gang to bring senators together. he said, we do not need to compromise. >> your rebuttal? >> john warner and i worked as a team for virginia. i am proud of john warner as a friend and ally. as far as my office budget, we turned back $1.40 million in the six years i served as senate. we showe
the deficit in half. unfortunately, he doubled it. trillion-dollar deficits for the last four years. >> not true. the annual deficit was already running at $1.2 trillion when obama took office. >> reporter: how is fact checking actually done? on the last presidential debate, we watched one of the oldest fact-checking groups do their job. they are called factcheck.org, established by the university of pennsylvania. four members went to work. eugene kiely used to be a newspaper reporter. he covered congress and government for more than 20 years. he is managing this evening's fact checking. been as important or central in this campaign as the economy has been up until recently, there's some material here that we're going to have to research for first time. >> reporter: as soon as the debate begins, kiely starts to type what both candidates say. he comes across figures or comments that need checking. next, he e-mails colleagues, telling them what to research. then they check the accuracy of the comments. they use official sources like those of the congressional research for candidates'
to issue deficit bonds or public services will grind to a halt. in order to do that, he must nail down an agreement with the opposition parties. that could force him to call an election. japanese lawmakers gathered monday to start an extraordinary session of the diet. noda only delivered his opening speech to the lower house. the opposition who control the upper house didn't allow him to speak. that's never happened before. noda had an agreement in august that led to the passage of bills to raise the consumption tax and reform social security. he's angling for more agreements. he needs opposition support to help reform the electoral system to address the disparity in weight of votes among constituencies. a more pressing issue, though, is the budget. the prime minister wants opposition parties to vote in favor of a bill to allow the government to issue deficit-government bonds. he says delaying this year's budget will affect people's lives and the economy. >> translator: every year we use the deficit bond bills as a tool to make political deals. we should give up this inappropriate prac
, indeed, the government of i said i can't is very concerned about the fiscal deficit situation and the finance minister unveiling the consolidation plan, something that hasn't gone on particularly well with the markets because they're not willing to believe the fiscal map. let's talk about what the government intendses to close fy 13 with. the budgeted number 5.1, saying there will be a slippage, but they hope to contain to 5.3%. most estimates peg the fiscal deficit numberner from 5.7 to 5.9%. but as i said, the finance minister coming out all guns blazing and saying it cannot be a business as usual promise. the tough decidings will need to be taken. they are talking about the decisions on the taxation front. they hope to divest the government's share holding. the spectrum sale should give them another strengthening rupee will bring down their import subsidy especially as far as oil sub s citydyes are concerninged. so the government at this point in time is clear, they're also sending out a message to the reserve bank of india. it announces its mop taker poli policy, they feel
the deficit and fixing the debt. so many things will flow from that. the president has to get both sides together, the caucus leaders, the people who took some chances on since and-bolts, tom coburn who said, i guess, i'm taking a chance. we've got to get the big urbansa -- the dick durbins, who supported simpson-balls even though it -- simpson-bowles. and we need to get something along those lines to eliminate the deficit and fix the debt, invest in building a true american energy independence, that will increase the tax credit for wind and solar, do things for gossip and solar and oil, and -- to do things for gas and oil. even if we do not build new nuclear reactors, our reactors are going to be old in 20 years. have an all-in strategy and invest in training and education and leave the congress on both sides. we're going to do this, but i'm going to take the weight. if there are tough decisions, blame them on me. that is what executive leadership is about. that is what the president is determined to do after the election. he has sort of hinted about it. i would talk about it. governor
to get a broader deficit in place combining the tax cuts, extending the bush era tax cuts? umax. buerkle: the house voted with bipartisan support. we don't know what the regulation is going to be coming down type. it will disparately affect the middle class or it will affect all americans in an economy that is so fragile. it will be a mistake to raise taxes. the last congress in 2010 knew that. we don't raise taxes when the economy is fragile. it will impact businesses and job creation and what we want to do is encourage them and help them grow so they can hire and get our economy back on track. >> moderator: sea would get us back on track for now and beyond? buerkle: public. rozum: i would support progressives marginal tax rates on the top 10%. those that have done well in our economy in the past 40 years. i support the eisenhower rates. with the eisenhower rates we could raise $1.2 trillion people need to be put back to work with money in their pockets. i also support cutting the military budget by 50%. we can protect small businesses and farms by not raising taxes. when we get over a
, create millions of jobs, and cut the deficit. voters understand their big ideas and they like them, but undecided voters aren't sure which guy can turn promises into economic reality. i've got two of the best political minds in the country to break this down for us. candy crowley our chief political correspondent, host of "state of the union with candy crowley" and mark preston, cnn's political director. candy, let's start with you. from the very first primary which you covered to the last hour of voting, the economy has been and will be issue number one. is there anything either candidate can really say or do in the next few days to sway voters who are still not convinced? >> i don't know that even if they could, they have anything left to say or do to convince these voters. you know as well as i do, we're going to get one more jobs report and we're also going to get the report for how the economy, the gdp, how the economy did in the third quarter, so, you know, it's possible that they will have some talking points around that but at this point in a campaign, they don't want to sa
job creator and then he went into government. and he took the state of massachusetts from deficits to surplus, from job losses to job gains. and let's think about his pure leadership capability in those olympics. he didn't lead with a title and he didn't lead with anything other than the ability of a human being to raise the bar of everybody else. you know what, my kids are 12 years old. i want an america that will give the next generation more than the last generation gave to us. that's the greatest american tradition that we celebrate across our great country. . i know he's going to deliver that. i'm not for mitt romney just because he happens to be a republican. i'm for mitt romney because he will lead to a brighter and stronger america and a brighter and stronger ohio. we need the wind at our back, not in our face. there are a lot of polls out there talking about what the going to happen. i've thought about it long and hard and i don't spin a lot. i do it straight from the shoulder. look around. look at this crowd. look at this enthuse asm and not just here. not just here but a
a state with the deficits were high, people were out of work. when he left, what was the story? he balanced the budget, ran a surplus, and the people back to work. and then i think you saw with one of these videos about the olympics. that is leadership. you go out there, the thing is a mess and you turn it around because you are a leader. that is why it is so important we elect romney, because it is these kids' future that is at stake. it is the strength of the family that is at stake. now, i have to tell you, i have been referring to paul ryan as the paul revere of the next generation, ok? i've known paul ryan for a long time. unfortunately, he is a lot younger than i am. in fact, when i was budget committee chairman, he worked on the staff of the budget committee. but he stood out like no one else on nasdaq. then he was elected to congress. our careers are very similar because he has taken on these issues, these a dent issues and economic issues and the job issues for our country. i have to tell you, when you are in washington doing that, it is all lonely trek up the mountain. bu
in indiana. when you are speaker of the house, for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. came in, indiaaniels was $700 million in debt and a deficit of $700 million. i would like to know, from my colleagues on stage, how we will mature and preserve the fiscal integrity of indiana. >> if you spent the last 12 years in india and not congress you would know that our budget needs to be balanced. i have a balanced bipartisan a balanced budget. and the things you talked about were supported by david long, and lieutenant governor. find laughable that united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice but five times congressman. you voted and the results in increased our deficit by 200 billion, billion with a b dollars. >> find a key house, senate and governor's races on the c-span, c-span radio and c- span.org/campaign 2012. >> a discussion on the current state and future of the news industry, focusing on investigative reporting and journalism practices. this event, hosted by zocalo public square, is an hour and 15 minutes.

for a trillion dollar deficit for the last four years. the largest, fastest that increase in american history and say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut cabin balance it's amazing to me also that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force the congress to set priorities and stop funding things like cylinder solyndra and prioritize like social security, medicare and education and that's why i support the balanced budget to the constitution. >> i especially like watching the gavel-to-gavel coverage. it is really only the place to get the real deal and i also enjoy newsmakers and the book programs i like that the commentary is only intended to let you know what is going on and there isn't really much analysis. they're certainly isn't an opinion, and i appreciate how i can really see through and understand the programming itself and i can get my analysis elsewhere. if you want to see how your gov
, having voted for a trillion dollar deficits for the last four years, the largest, fastest debt increase in american history, can say that we have to control spending. you have done nothing to control spending over the last four years. with respect to cut, cap, and balance, it's amazing to me that the idea of cutting wasteful spending, capping the ability of congress to spend money we don't have, and balancing the budget is extreme. i think it would force congress to set priorities and stopped funding in things like solyndra and prioritize things like social security, medicare, and education. that's why i support a balanced budget amendment to the constitution. >> the race to succeed the retiring new mexico senator is just one of the key house, senate, and governor's races you can follow on c-span, c-span radio, and at c-span.org. >> more campaign 2012 coverage next, to milwaukee, wisconsin. where friday the former governor tommy thompson faced off against u.s. congresswoman tammy baldwin, in their third and final debate for the senate seat left open by retiring senator herb kohl. it is
office, we had moved past 20 states in job creation and turned a $3 billion deficit into a $2 billion rainy day fund. whether in public office or at a private business, i did not ask people what party they belonged to. i asked them what ideas they brought to the table. as governor, i met with leaders of both parties to find common ground. that is what i will do as president -- and i will start on day one. on my first day in office, i will also send five bills to congress and sign five executive orders. every one of them will help us create jobs. and that is just the start of my plan to create 12 million jobs in my first term alone. every piece of legislation and every executive order will help us achieve five important goals. first, we will achieve north american energy independence by the year 2020. second, we will make sure our students and workers have the skills they need to succeed. third, we will promote trade the works for america and crack down on countries like china when they cheat. fourth, we will cut the deficit from day one and balance our budget within 10 years. and fina
realities and the disparity between them, namely china's trade surplus and america's deficit. this problem drew similar responses from both candidates. president obama emphasized his record of bringing cases against china to the world trade organization, the wto, while seeking redress for unfair trade practices. governor romney emphasized his plan of levying tariffs against chinese imports to the u.s. if china persists refusing to follow international trade rules. >> question. both president obama's and governor romney's positions on china are they solid and presidential in scope and in content? >>> tim? >> it is silly politics. this is what every politician does. they campaign like pat buchanan, frankly, as a nationalist, and they govern as free traders as internationalists. these guys are not going to wage a trade war in china this is tough talk to win ohio. >> you want to defend yourself. >> i am an economic patriot and economic nationalist and obama is using my phrase. but i believe romney has gotten himself out to a point with this occurrence manipulator he is going to have to follow
in additional spending. lots of things, wanting to balance a budget, the annual deficit runs between one and $1.5 billion annually. i will start with you, bill. even with obama and his foreign policy, spending keeps going up. >> some folks don't talk about this in a great way. it is the kind of thing where most people -- [inaudible] you don't want to approach it strictly from a numbers basis. by the same token, throwing money at national security and problems it's not necessarily something that's going to solve the problem. >> unless you're ben bernanke. [laughter] does because it comes down the pipe -- [inaudible] right now we have a situation where the pentagon is saying that we don't need as much money as mitt romney is proposing. that it's not necessary, number one. they are not lugging the restraint, but there is a general attitude that we have to do more with less, let's put our heads together and figure out how to do that. a great panic that this is going to make us a third-rate military. so right now it seems like there is room to cut where you can. they have a stake in the matter to te
about what to do with budget deficits, and properly so. social security has not been a drain on the deficits, but there is a lot of misinformation about it. a lot of proposals floating around about privatizing so that people, especially younger people, into the market instead of having a government social safety net. what about social security that covers not only the elderly, but also those with dependent children can also security as well? putting money into private accounts to be invested by people, that is not going to be helpful to the vast majority of people. knowing where people stand on social security is very important. i want to raise an issue related to the courts. lilly ledbetter was such an explicit example of how courts can matter. and there are projections. it is hard to know what the tenure will be of the nine justices there are on the court right now. many predict that over time and in the next several years, there'll be one, two, or perhaps more vacancies on the supreme court. every vacancy makes a difference, especially given so many 5-4 decisions. who is i
and the senate leans more republican. we're more likely to get a grand bargain on deficit reduction because the president will be more likely to make a deal for 2014 and 2016. they can't spend the next four years not doing anything about the deficit. we could see a deal to reduce the budget deficit and that would be a net positive for all the financial markets if that happens. but if the republicans were to run the table, you would see a pretty big rally on wall street. >> if president obama stays in office, do you think we'll take another peek at the american jobs act? >> i certainly think that's something the president is going to bring to the table. and perhaps that could be part of a bargain around the debt ceiling. one thing we've heard a lot of talk about, not so much from the white house although they've suggested they're open to it, is some sort of extension not to the payroll tax cut, but something like that. and, actually, just from the economics -- >> which is the only thing that republicans liked over the sum from the american jobs act. >> that's a good point. that's a correct p
of momentum in florida, thank you very much, steve. >> he said he would cut the deficit in half, instead, it's double what it was. he said he'd get unemployment by now down to 5.2%, and we learned today, it ticked up to 7.9%, that's 9 million jobs short. >> that was governor mitt romney calling out president obama for falling-- 9 million jobs soar has promised. and the bureau of labor and statistics, adding 171,000 jobs, now are the new numbers going to affect the way the candidates talk about the economy in these final days before the election in joining us now with perspective, a mitt romney supporter who deals firsthand with unemployment issues, governor jan brewer of arizona. >> good morning. >> let's talk for a moment about the jobs numbers that came out yesterday, and the president is saying that the fact that 171,000 jobs have been added shows that his policies are working and taking a little longer than he had he' hoped, but that the country is moving in the right direction. and what's your response to that? >> well, you know, we're all grateful as things are, are turning around a li
on track, get things going again for starters and i'm worried about the budgets, the deficits. all my kids are in their 30s and we need the bubbling economy to move them along. >> a lot of people are hurting right now. but the president's ideology is what we need. >> i would say that the stimulus package was a really big success and i thought that, you know, i want government to play a role in our lives and i have a feeling that romney doesn't think that it should. >> let's met bring in jonathan althar. welcome to my home state. let's talk about the economy and we put it in the context of the latest poll. jonathan, is this an economy election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the heartland of america and even when the economy isn't as big as it is this year, in ohio in particular, it's about those working class voters and whether they think that one candidate or the other is providing them with a better future. and this has been a very stable race in ohio. largely because of the senator who is taking the podium soon, sherrod brown. this is one of the hidden stories of ohio. we've heard a l
. when you were speaker of the house for five of the six years, indiana ran deficits. when mitch daniels came into powers -- came into power couple of years later, indiana was 700 million in debt and had a deficit of $820 million. the facts are stubborn things. i would like to know from my colleague how will we protect and preserve the fiscal integrity of the state of indiana. >> you know our budget has to be in indiana according to the constitution. i have ballast and produce a bipartisan budget. -- i have balanced and produced a bipartisan budget. i find it almost laughable the united states congressman would lecture anyone about fiscal responsibility. you voted not once, not twice, but five times congressman. you voted and the resolve to increase the deficit by $200 billion. >> fine key house, senate, and governor's races from across the country at c-span radio and c- span.org. "washington journal" continues. host: conversation about the battleground state of new hampshire continues with jim merrill. if i could just begin with some specifics about new hampshire. the unemployment rate,
for the deficit. we will look at some of the numbers, all of that on the other side of the debate. please stay with us. welcome back to the continuation of our debate. with us today, congressman allen west and patrick murphy. we will continue our discussion with george bennett. >> we left hanging on the deficit. you are opposed to raising taxes. the deficit this past year was $1.1 trillion. if you are not going to raise taxes, what are the things you can cut to get close to erasing a $1.1 trillion deficit? >> we should be about $230 billion, but we have to look at agencies that were created that are not meeting up to their mission. you look at the department at energy that was created when i was a teenager. it was to make the united states energy independent. what has happened with that department over the last 40 years? we look at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at the federal government level, money that could have been used better at the local levels. we have to look at th
to the biggest budget deficit in 2008. >> so you believe the senate is doing their job? >> i think that they did the right thing in the budget control act. this includes revenue and going after these tax loopholes. the politicians who signed the pledge to the lobbyists grover norquist -- >> i will give you 60 seconds to respond. >> sitting around your kitchen tables you can't go three months without managing your finances. you can't go three weeks without managing the budget for your small business. but he and other career politicians have gone three years since they passed a budget. he talks about the budget control act. if you are watching this, think for a second. do you have the budget control act in your small business? this is washington speak. we manage our small business with the budget. but these politicians to think that they can live by different set of rules. after you've been there 20 years i think this is what happens. i support the proposal this is, no budget, no pay. >> this is a good sound bite but it doesn't get us to where we need to be. we passed the budget that does to the b
with some ideological policies that have been proven not to work, blow a hole in budget deficit, the economy collapses? i would like to ask -- if these policies that they want to implement are so great why didn't they work in the last 10 years? we have a lot more information in our society today. that was not that long ago when we experienced almost a complete economic collapse. the president has been able to help dig us out of the whole and get us moving in the right direction. there is a jobs bill that any economist who is being objective about it said we ill create over a million new jobs. get some money into the road and bridge projects that we need done in this country. make sure local governments are not laying off police, fire, and teachers. let's move the economy forward and create jobs. make investments into the new energy sector, research and development so we can create the jobs of the future. so places like ohio can keep going with what it is that we have been doing and build on the auto industry and build on the steel industry and get into the new economies. we are hitting a roa

to turn us together but he divided. he promised to cut the deficit in half, he doubled it. how about his budget? it failed to win a single vote either republican or democrat in either house of the congress. he said he would reform medicare and social security and save them from pending insolvency but he shrunk from proposing any solution at all. where are the jobs? where are the 9 million more jobs his stimulus would have created by now? they're in china, mexico, canada, in countries that have made themselves more attractive while obama's policies have made it less attractive here. his campaign tries to minimize the failures and to make this election about small shiny objects. it matters more than that. it matters to your family and the senior who needs an appointment met by a receptionist saying medicare isn't taking any patients i. it matters to the man in wisconsin i spoke with a few days ago and he used to have a job at there are 25 an hour with benefits and now has one at $8 an hour without benefits. it matters to the college student with $20,000 of student debt who now learns she'l
to tax cuts and would say actually deficits don't matter right now. let's make growth a priority. and because it was a republican president that, therefore, you would have the congress much more willing to go along. wall street at this moment would see that as a positive scenario, stimulus by stealth. >> what i worry about is that neither candidate if they win is going to get to execute their vision, that they're going to be having -- like you marry someone but there are a lot of unruly relatives you never quite realized were there. coming out of the woodwork. and i worry -- i actually think both men acquitted themselves quite well in the debates. but the point is, they're in this larger environment, what is going to go on. i worry we're going to see muddling through instead of clear-cut tax reform, clear cut infrastructure program, clear cut ways to improve education. >> joe, i remember a couple of years ago -- >> i do it every year. >> but a series of wonderful articles, before the midterm for "time" magazine. you talked over a lot of the midwest, middle class. and you found th

paid for that window. so that's commerce. >> it is. you spoke about deficit spending a moment ago. look one of the problems we have in this country right now, one of the reasons why we can't get economic growth going more than about 2% is because of the deficit that we're running. deficits have a negative impact on the economy. so long term that isn't a good measure is. again if it was a good idea to go around and basically destroying property to create economic growth why don't we blow up a few cities and we can have a lot of economic growth? the real issue is is that we need productive commerce over time. not replacement commerce but long-term. we're talking about --. melissa: like how, lance. how can we do that? >> we need productive commerce. in the short term we'll get half a percent bump to gdp. long term it's a different issue. melissa: jeff, what do you think is the short or long term way we get the economy rolling again if it is not a big storm like sandy? >> really where does prosperity come from? not from deinstructing things and building them back up. it comes from getting t
the payment of tax grants. the move comes as it looks increasingly unlikely to pass a bill to issue deficit covering bonds. the main opposition parties are against it. the bonds are necessary to implement the budget. government officials say they could run out of money by the end of november unless it's passed. it was scheduled on friday to allocate $27 billion to prefectures and $24 billion to municipalitie municipalities. some tax grants due in september have already been deferred. people in cash strapped municipalities can expect the latest delay to expect financing and disrupt public services. that's all for me for now. i'll leave you with the markets this tuesday here in asia. >>> the discussion included disputed islands in the south china sea. they agree to continue talks to establish a declaration of conduct with their will to resolve the issue peacefully. countries have been asking china to agree to a legal biding code of conduct governing behavior in the disputed region. they have failed to reach substantial progress over the issue. china has been reluctant to establish a code of c
taxes. you hope you get really fast growth. i think the deficit would go up a lot for a while. we would get growth. but i'm not sure it would be anything like we saw under reagan. there is so much debt out there. there is so many headwinds. there's europe, the a administration would do less on cutting taxes if at all and probably raise spending. that's really where the difference is between the two. one of them wants a smaller government. one of them sees the government doing more things. that's a big difference. >> you know more than i do. quick answer, do you think either of them will get the 12 million jobs in four years that they're promising? >> it would be a very good outcome. i think it's a long shot, frankly. >> your answer is smarter than mine. i said i'd wear a dress for a week if it happened. you're in less danger. thanks very much for being with us. >>> let's get back to ohio. let's get back to the auto bailout. president obama bailed out the auto industry. mitt romney says the bailed out auto companies are using that money to ship jobs to china. we'll get to the bottom of w
cuts. but the deficit situation has now grown so bad that there's just no appetite for further borrowing at this time. >> maya macguineas runs the committee for a responsible federal budget, a bipartisan group that lobbies congress. she says uncertainty about how the government will deal with the deficit and the huge national debt is inhibiting employers from hiring. >> in the business world, there's over $2 trillion of cash sitting on the sidelines that could be used to grow the economy, make investments and create jobs. but it's not going to be invested until people know what to expect going forward in the economy. and that's why you need some kind of stability that would come from a big debt deal to help bring that about. >> in fact, unless there is a grand bargain on taxes and government spending by the end of the year, by some estimates, another 2 million people could lose their jobs beginning early next year. that's when the nation would drive off the so-called fiscal cliff. if that were to happen tax rates would go up for nearly every single income group. taxes on invest
budget this year was $1 trillion in deficits. the paul ryan budget which passed the u.s. house was $600 billion in deficit. i have the courage to submit a balanced budget if i'm elected president right after i'm inaugurated. secondly, i am for jobs and america for american citizens first, and the only candidate that has called for a near complete moritorium on green card admissions to the united states until unemployment is under 5%. it makes no sense to bring in so many foreign workers when our unemployment is so high in this country.
